The Monty Python TTRPG Kickstarter Just Went Live!

Monty Python's Cocurricular Mediaeval Reenactment Programme, the offical licensed Monty Python roleplaying game, just went live on Kickstarter!

It's $25 for the PDF, or $65 for the hardcover ($95 for the special edition). You can also pick up a whole bunch of accessories -- dice, tokens, a screen, even a dice catapult!

The game is a rules-lite system (with spam!) and, while set in mediaeval England, draws on Monty Python's entire catalogue.

You can choose to play a Cleric, Enchanter, Hermit, Knight, Monarch, Monk/Nun, Ne’erdowell, Noble, Peasant, or Troubadour. You'll also have up to five Traits like Valour, Wisdom in the Ways of Science, and so on.

The dice appear to include d18s, d16s, and d14s. There's also a d30!

The Kickstarter has a high funding goal of $200k, which is made in the first hour. Currently it is racking up a thousand dollars every few seconds — chances are this might be a new million dollar campaign, after a lull in them these past few months.

It's funny how our word spam to describe unwanted mail or email came from a Monty Python sketch, so it was a natural seeing it in the description.

Even the tier level descriptions are awesome. If they had a "Moistened Bint" pledge level at $500 with a replica scimitar (err Excalibur), I would have done it in a heartbeat. As it stands, I will have to settle for being an Upper Class Twit (and part time Stock Broker).

Don't get me wrong, I like a good Monty Python reference or in-joke as much as the next geek. But I'm not sure my sanity could handle a game that is nothing but Monty Python references and in-jokes. This might be A Bit Too Silly for me.

That said, I'm happy it's doing so well. It has reached $440K and 3,300 backers in less than 3 hours, which is pretty impressive.

The designer has said in a few places that the game's meant to be far more than endless Python references. Knowing gamers, that won't matter.

The Kickstarter went live at 7am PST. It's been up 3 hours 37 minutes as of this post.

Really don't like games that are supposed to be " funny".
BUT.
The description, as noted above, is actually very entertaining
I find funny games good for one shots. Played some Paranoia recently and we all laughed and laughed and had a blast. Then went back to more D&D (though some wanted to keep playing Paranoia). Probably pull out Paranoia again at some point for another laugh filled one shot. Same with Monty Python.
